The European Union as an Actor in Global Climate Change Negotiations
2017
The paper analyses the role of the European Union as an actor of international negotiations on the issue of climate change. For a number of reasons, the European Union's environmental policy seems to be an extremely relevant topic for the study. Many are concerned of how the EU, whose important role in world environmental regulation seemed very stable, is so rapidly losing all levers of influence on the international community. Due to the rapidly changing international situation, in particular, with the arrival of Donald Trump (famous for his skepticism towards climate initiatives) to the White House, the future fate of the Paris Agreement and other initiatives in the field of climate, biodiversity, etc. can be questioned. That is why it is so important to understand which mechanisms can help the EU to restore its lost positions. It is both important for the EU and for global achievements in the field of protecting the climate.
